"We wanted to make this place different from other soccer complexes and serving healthier food was going to be part of that. It had never been done before but we thought it would be perfect for Johnson County parents who want their kids to eat healthier. But at the end of the day, it seems everyone just wants their junk food fix."
-- Mike Laplante, the
manager of the Overland Park Soccer Complex in Kansas, upon the city terminating after three months its three-year contract with Leap Hospitality, which was offering healthy alternatives (such as
salads and sandwiches) to the complex's menu. City staff noticed hot dogs, chips, candy and colas "were selling like hotcakes," reported the (Kansas City Star).
